Well-being, Experience Design and Service Design

The Kuopio Academy of Design at the Savonia University of Applied Sciences in Finland is hosting a service design conference of sorts on September 7-9, 2009.

The conference will be structured around keynote presentations on the 7th of September and continuing with three practical service design workshops during the 8th and the 9th of September. Keynotes will be delivered by service design professionals. We have already two confirmed keynote presenters: Professor Birgit Mager from KISD and Associate Professor Nicola Morelli from Aalbog University.

After the keynotes on day one, three workshops on service design and experience design will be facilitated by the likes of Stefan Moritz, Lauren Currie and Arne van Oosterom:

We’ll invite 15 participants to each workshop to create new service solutions and concepts. Each workshop will receive a service challenge that they will be working with. The service challenges are real cases given us by our co-operatives.

The conference appears to be free of charge. They’re enrolling 45 participants to the workshops on days two and three. Sign up by contacting minna.merivalo [at] savonia.fi
